Spectacle & Scaffolding: Contemporary Photography Muses Hierarchy
September 17 - November 22, 2019
Spectacle & Scaffolding: Contemporary Photography Muses Hierarchy , a traveling exhibition that explores the underlying power structures that we live with daily, but which often seem invisible. Four renowned photographers -- Mark Curran, Trevor Paglen, elin o’Hara slavick, and Greta Pratt – together consider power differentials in the United States and beyond. The images range from the human faces of workers and workings of the market economy to technologies of stealth surveillance, the relationship of our health to the environment, and symbols of patriotism and nationalism. Spectacle & Scaffolding brings these together for each of our considerations as viewers and participants in overarching systems of hierarchy.
